Aaron Hernandez’s fiancee Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez spoke to Dr. Phil on his show Monday and Tuesday and the two of them discussed everything. From whether or not Hernandez really killed Odin Lloyd, to whether he actually committed suicide, to rumors of his having a gay lover and the notes that he left behind were all hit upon and more.
She began the interview with Dr. Phil by telling him that she doesn’t believe Hernandez was actually involved in the murder of Odin Lloyd.
However, she did discuss a box that allegedly contained the murder weapon, which Hernandez asked her to dispose of. She says that his request didn’t seem odd and she wasn’t curious to know what was inside the box.
What about Hernandez allegedly committing suicide? Jenkins-Hernandez says that she doesn’t believe it and never would have even suspected it.
She also discussed the note Hernandez left for his daughter…
Jenkins-Hernandez pointed out several things that she found “odd” about Hernandez’s suicide note.
As far as whether Hernandez did commit suicide so his family could get $6.5 million from the New England Patriots? She doesn’t dismiss it completely.
Then, as for the many rumors that Hernandez was gay and had a prison lover, Jenkins-Hernandez isn’t buying it, calling the claims a “crock of bull.” Especially since she says she has never even heard of Kyle Kennedy.
“If Kyle Kennedy was such a close friend, and Aaron was telling him he wanted to hang it up, he would still be here because Kyle Kennedy should have, you know, poked that lightbulb in somebody’s head and been a true friend and stopped it,” said Jenkins-Hernandez.
She also shared what Hernandez’s last words to her were before his death.
Basically, like many of us out here, she just wants some definitive answers…
… and for Aaron to be remembered as a better man than most believe him to have been.
“I want him, one, to be known as innocent because he was,” said Jenkins-Hernandez. “I just want him to be known for what he is instead of what people are speculating him out to be from what they see on TV. They want to make him out to be this monster, and he’s not. I just think that it’s time for Aaron to be free.”
The interview was very sad, yet gave us a inside look into the life of Aaron Hernandez. Hopefully one day the truth will surface and we can finally put this tragic story to sleep.
